Students at Beaver Brae Secondary School received the chance of a lifetime this morning.

The Stanley Cup made its way to the school along with a handful of hockey legends.

Sean Montieth, Keewatin-Patricia District School Board director of education, touched on the unique experience.

“In the last five minutes I've seen things I never thought I'd see. Ron MacLean just walked in, the Stanley Cup is here,” Montieth said. “We have about 800 to 1,000 people here in the gymnasium. What excitement, and an energized atmosphere.”

NHL Hall of famer Lanny McDonald, Olympic gold medallist Cassie Campbell-Pascall, and local goaltending great Rick. St. Croix were also on-hand for the cup visit.

Students not only got to see the Stanley Cup, they poised questions to the legends in attendance.

Montieth discussed the scope of having Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada in Kenora.

“It's a good opportunity to bring hockey back to it's roots. The whole small town, outdoor rink feel. Kenora has a long history at all levels of lots of success,” Montieth said. “Events like this really do bring the community together and I think there are lots of opportunities for families to do things together and see things they often only see on television.”

He added that Dan Reynard and the local organizing committee must be praised for their hard work in making the whole week possible.

Another Stanley Cup visit is planned for tomorrow at Pope John Paul II School with the likes of Darcy Tucker and Mark Napier scheduled to appear.
